Who else loves the sun but isn’t a fan of being too hot?! Cooling down in summer isn’t always an easy task, especially when running around after little ones. And cooling them down is even harder, I know Jasper is always quite sweaty. So I have created my take on frozen yoghurt style ice lollies which are really healthy and refreshing on a warm day. I use a dairy free yoghurt to make my ice lollies plant based but any yoghurt would work really well in this recipe. These lollies are packed full of banana for energy, berries for a Vitamin C boost and yoghurt for some added calcium, making them a great snack for all the family. This recipe will make approximately 6 ice lollies depending on the size of your ice lolly moulds.
For this recipe you will need the following ingredients:
- 1 frozen ripe banana
- 100g frozen berries (I like to use raspberries but strawberries, blueberries or a mix would also work well)
- 200g koko dairy free yoghurt (Or whichever plain yoghurt you prefer)
- a couple of tbsps of maple syrup (this is optional to sweeten the lollies and remove some of the tartness but you might not want to add this if you are making the lollies for little ones)
Then to make these fruity frozen yoghurt ice lollies simply:
- Pop all of the ingredients into a blender and blend until there are no lumps. If your blender struggles with the thick mixture just add a splash of milk. I added a splash of oat milk to mine because my nutribullet struggled.
- If you don’t want bits in your ice lolly, sieve the mixture to remove the berry seeds. You will have more seeds if you use raspberries than strawberries or blueberries.
- Pour the mixture in to your ice lolly moulds and place in the freezer for at least a couple of hours.
The lollies will keep in the freezer but the longer they are left in there the icier they will become.
I hope you enjoy this recipe. I would love to know if you have ever made your own ice lollies before or if you have a go at making these, let me know in the comments or on facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
